    Greetings, fair chicken folk! This morning I noticed that one of our neighbors had a new rooster out in their yard, and I'm trying to figure out what breed he is. He's quite scruffy, is missing some hackles and his tail feathers. I affectionately refer to him as "Adam".

    I had to take the shots over the fence, so that's about as good as I can get [​IMG] Four toes on each foot, clean-shanked. Earlobes are a mix of red and white, kind of like a BO's. Some faint black barring on the back of his neck with a little bit of gold/buff peeking in. His comb flops to one side, so I'd wondered if he was a Leghorn.............but I thought that only the hens' combs would do that in the Leghorn breed? Best guesses are appreciated!

    Looks like a Red Sex Link rooster. That is my guess LOL!

    Did you ask your neighbor what type of rooster it is?

    I would guess that it is a mix.

    Thanks for the guesses! Bullitt, I have not asked them what he is. I don't know those neighbors, so I'm going to have to work up some courage to take a walk over there and see. Gulp!
